“[It] was Shakespearean, with flourishes,” Bendis said in an interview, "It was cool. It was a lot of fun...[This] is a little different than how Hollywood usually does it, which is a compliment to [Marvel Studios chief] Kevin [Feige],...Usually, Hollywood just does what it does. I know there are some comic book movies I hear that the people never even read a comic book based on the thing they’re working on."
Bendis, who is currently the writer for Dark Avengers in addition to many other Marvel titles, is part of the group of comic book writers that give the screenwriters and film makers a better idea of how to translate their characters from the panel to the big screen.
“They’ve asked me to be part of the team of guys who pick their brains and take their advice,” Bendis continued. “And for me it’s great to watch these writers deal with it and handle it. Watching them is a lot of fun.”
Wow. I can't begin to tell you how happy this makes me. To know that Bendis will have a hand in the interpretation of these characters gives me a very positive feeling about how these movies will turn out. Bendis also went on to add that the script for Iron Man 2 is "so good," that he read it 30 times. I am very excited about this. I think over the last few years we have seen some very disappointing films based on comic books and comic book characters, and I think that the best thing that these film makers could have done is to allow comic book writers to get involved in the scripting of these films.
Might I mention, I am way jealous of Bendis' job. Are you?
